I figure you don't have a passport?


I checked the passport route, as you suggested. It appears that the time to actually receive it may take past the expiration date of my current DL, but thanks for the suggestion.

Have you considered contacting the constituent services of the US Congress person that represents you in your current location? They can be quite effective as I learned 20 years ago when my dad died. Help with untangling a Medicare billing morass and help with his interment in a national cemetery. His service records were destroyed in a fire in St Louis in 1967. VA wouldn't play ball with the funeral director even after I located Dad's copy of his DD-214. Many Congressional offices are quite effective shoveling through bureaucratic manure.

I don't read a congressional problem here. OP initiated this whole situation by not having his ducks in a row.
SSA works at its own pace,and the OP exacerbated it by not having a complete roster of required documents.
Most states have a very limited amount of time to procure a valid state license after moving, some as little as ten days, none greater than thirty.
Like I said earlier, drive to AZ,it's not like a billion miles from Texas,renew the AZ license take 4 or 6 hour drive back to Texas and apply for your new license.

Thanks for mentioning that. My next step was to go the political route, contacting governor's office, and other higher ups. If my current attempt to obtain my SS card fails I'll be doing just that. Problem is, I'm afraid of running out of time as the wheels of gov't often turn slowly. I would hate to lose my driving privilege over this situation.

Why I made the suggestion to have the Congressional office lean on Social Security. When trying to sift through my dad's issues I had the information I needed from Medicare in less than 3 weeks after my Congressman's office got involved.

You HAD a passport and are just replacing it. I'm pretty sure I did NOT need my social security card to get mine.

If you're willing to pay, I KNOW you can get "rush" processing.

I already checked into that, where you hire a 3rd party to assist. From what I read, there are issues with this service (can't elaborate now). I'll just need to hope my request is accepted this time and I get the SS card before my DL expires.

I'm not looking for a passport, but a replacement SS card so the super fussy TX DMV will issue me a DL. If I could magically go back in time, I would have just stayed in AZ!
